  1. Is FLAC Music Worth It?

    I’m sure you can. I can on the 558s as well but the drivers in them are not good enough to give you all of the information you lose going from flac to mp3. You just get some. Like me I said you do not have to pay attention to the song to hear the difference on a truly hifi system, it sounds better and you will immediately notice. On something like $150-200 headphones you probably can tell the difference but you need to pay close attention.
  2. Is FLAC Music Worth It?

    Considering the $10,000 Martin Logan’s are only their middle of the road speaker not really. They have a 15k, a couple 25ks and an 80k pair.
  3. burn cd for hi-fi system

    What brand is the "hi fi setup" and is it proprietary? If its a good brand and not proprietary you can just buy a new preamp/avr for it and that will let you connect your speakers to the PC through HDMI. As far as burning the google play songs, I'm not sure what quality Google Play songs are but I can guarantee you that it isn't "hi fi". It's probably 256 or 320. If you do want to explore hi fi I'd look into tidal. They offer streaming at CD quality and better.
  4. Is FLAC Music Worth It?

    Depends on what I’m listening on. I can absolutely tell the different between an mp3 and a flac file if I’m using my $10,000 Martin Logan’s. It’s night and day. It’s not even something you have to try to listen to. If I’m listening on my Sennheiser HD558s though not really. They aren’t good enough to really show off hi res audio. The new Tidal masters collection is something I highly recommend. Some of the best I’ve heard from a digital source.
  5. NBA 2k is not an arcade basketball game like NBA jam. It’s a simulation game and as such is meant to be realistic. It will kill immersion if you make a guy and he gets worse the more you play it. Plain and simple. At the end of day that’s the only way to achieve what you are saying. The game doesn’t even have a true end. You play until you decide to retire and go into the HOF if you earned it. The Golden State warriors are probably the toughest team in the game to play against. Since 2k uses the real nba schedule you may play them early and often or only twice a season later on. Your progression wouldn’t work.
  6. Well the only people complaining are the ones who can't max out their stats at age 21 in their first season. Seems pretty casual to me. That was line was also meant to be a joke but whatever.
  7. I'm looking at my PS4 right now. All hair, facial hair and colors are 100 VC. Some clothing is expensive but its meant to be. You don't want every MyPlayer running around with rolex watches on. And yes, the least VC I've gotten this year in MyCareer has been 650VC. I've played 20 games. Depending on how well you do it goes up or down. Hell even if it was 500VC per game (which it isn't) you would max your guy in four seasons. That seems pretty damn realistic to me since NBA players typically hit their prime between the ages of 25-28. In MyGM the reward is 500VC per game for a loss and 650VC per game for a victory with no way to change it and I haven't tried myleague this year yet. You seem like one of those guys who wants to be Michael Jordan in their first season. Go be casual somewhere else.
  8. The game has had two or three patches on PS4. No idea on PC.
  9. Shooting games are shit anyway. Go to an actual range, it's so much better and a "butt ton" more fun. See how ignorant that statement sounds? Going and joining a rec league is not the same as controlling your favorite fictional sports team and running plays while trying to win a championship. Not to mention, a big part of 2k is controlling a teams finances and trades while you sim games. If you're a sim head and love the business side of things where you set prices on the tickets, parking, food, programs and everything else while also managing the contracts of your players and staff and try and win games while making a profit the game is awesome. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean its shit. It's a very deep experience.
  10. Where does your tongue stay in your mouth

    Your tongue should always be behind your front teeth with the tip either touching behind your front top teeth or your hard palate in order to properly speak. If your tongue rests anywhere else and you speak English I would encourage you to work at it and train it to stay there. (You do not want it hovering) Source: I have a masters in Speech and Language Pathology.
  11. 2k literally already dealt with the issue. Hair, colors, and beards only cost 100VC now, and you earn 800-1000VC a game. The only people still mad are the ones who immediately want to be prime Michael Jordan their first season.
  12. In the case of Madden and NHL I would say you're right. This definitely is not the case with 2k. This game is completely different from last years. It doesn't even feel similar since they changed the entire motion system.
  13. Apple AirPods - Another Experience

    I have $10,000 in just audio in my signature. The airpods sound great for what they are.
  14. How is it idiotic? It's realistic. 2k is meant to be realistic. Using my previous example, Anthony Davis didn't come into the league and get worse every year, he got better which obviously makes it easier for his team. You don't come in as a god and get worse. You come in as a rookie used to playing against scrubs in college and are now being guarded by the best in the world. You get better than longer you're in the league.
  15. It's a sports game. It would make no fucking sense if the game got harder the better your player got. Obviously it's hardest right when you start as a rookie and gets easier the better your player gets.
